About Wholesale

We supply top quality meats across Leinster. In 2002 our dream was realised when we decided to branch out and begin to supply wholesale. Over the past 35 years we have grown this side of the business and have a comprehensive list of clients that include hotels, restaurants, nursing homes, bars and pubs.

The Mission of J.J Young and sons is to bring top quality, locally sourced meats to our customers. If you’re looking to shop for yourself, your family or your business, J.J. Young’s offers a wide selection of meats and poultry. We take pride in aging our steaks, curing our own gammons, as well as corning our own beef. We supply free range chickens, eggs and ducks supplied to us by local farms.

Our History

Year 1899

JJ Young and Sons Ltd. was established in 1899.

Year 1955

Jack Young, grandfather of the present directors of company had a wholesale business as well as a butcher shop up to 1955 when he handed over to the present generation’s father, Joseph Young. We are proud and conscious of our family history and tradition in the meat industry trading still under JJ Young and Sons wholesale and retail butchers, the J.J. standing for Jack Joseph (grandfather) and Joseph his son and now John, the grandson.

Year 1984

In 1984 a decision was made from being a traditional butcher to being a wholesaler, retailer and trader of meats and poultry. This has proved very successful.

Year 1997

In 1997 a major refurbishment of the original Celbridge shop was undertaken.

Year 2002

This has been very successful and led to further expansion. In 2002, we opened a 10,000 sq. ft purpose built Cold Store / Warehouse facility in Clane, to the standards and requirements of the Food Safety Authority. The project was supervised throughout.

Year 2015

Open new butchers shop in Lucan

We run a very successful business, consistently being a family which is synonymous with the quality meat trade in Ireland for at least 3 generations.We now have a factory outlet in Clane with a large wholesale and trade division.
